Re: Couple Ant Questions

My switches are officially related to 0.3A but considering I run this guy off them it's fine!

Re: Is this stuff any good?

I use this type of tape to insulate my 3d printer. I can't see it really being very effective armouring from spinners. It yields easily and would just shred.

I've signed up my er... 'friendly' team initially. I may swap a robot or two around closer but just to help you gauge numbers.

Re: New Arena

I just want to put this out there now, stuff like camera flaps gives me a small amount of worry. I'd be insistent on there being no uninterrupted path between the inside and outside of the arena when it comes to concerning spinners. My overhead spinner is easily capable of spraying shrapnel and with...

Thanks Alex - to be honest, I was hoping I could get you involved with some of our activity aimed at the local schools... you're near Yeovil right?
That'd be another of the Team nuts members! I'm on the other side of Sturminster to Yeovil.

Drop me a PM sometime!

@atomclub

Am I allowed to vote yes purely because you are literally 20 mins down the road from me? :P

Re: Servo problems.

Normal ESC's handle battle better so don't heat as much and (As Peter says) they normally have a dead band meaning that rather than (say the signal was 0 REVERSE - 10 FORWARD) 5 being STOP they say anything between 6 and 7 is STOP. So the trims have to wander far more before the ESC stops seeing it ...

Re: Servo problems.

This is an inherent problem in nearly all ESC's but servos are very susceptible for it. Essentially the way the servo reads the signal depends on the temperature. As it changes temperature (heating up over use for example) it may see 'Stop' as something else other than when it was turned on. There's...

Re: electronics conundrums

No gear is super useful, the above saw bot uses gear. Aux does give a full range but it has no native control tied into it (Which is what makes it normally not so useful), normally it's left as some kind of replica of throttle. Fancier TX's like a Devo can utilise this channel more with their progra...
